He's a cutie! I have to agree with you on the hermit butts....they have freaked me out since I was a kid and still do. We just acquired 2 land hermit crabs from a beach trip and have them in a 10 gallon of their own. Well, one night one of them decided to harrass another one and I found it out of it's shell and it totally freaked me out. It gives me the heeby jeebies for some reason....like seeing a really big spider with babies all over her....YIKES!

Dottie - I'm Pisces - that explains EVERYTHING! :p

I put several new shells in the tank and one of the crabs grabbed a shell about 3 sizes to big for it, but loves dragging it all over the tank. The other crab just likes to change 4-5 times a day, but keeps going back to it's original shell.

I am positively, 100% not sure!
